Unformatted text preview: ed in our case study. Essentially all the power meters currently installed at the IADC, as well as the energy management software package used, are Schneider Electric products. Thus, just about any Schneider Electric power meter would have integrated into the existing IADC system, however, the Enercept meter provided the data we needed (real energy and power) at the lowest hardware cost. The meters automatically transmitted average power readings from each oven on 15 minute intervals over an internal ethernet network which were timestamped and stored in a SQL Server database. The 15 minute interval time for averages was chosen to balance fidelity, storage, bandwidth, and smoothness of the data. Along with electricity data, we also incorporated operational data into the feedback. The source 'The mechanics assigned to this cell claimed that the pumps should not be turned off because the pumps have problems starting after shutdowns. of the operational data was an electronic MRP system which tracked material, components, and worker operations t...
